Solution

The correct option is B

Rs. 81


Let the reduced price of the box after the discount be Rs. x. Then,

Sales tax = (9% of Rs.x) = Rs. (9x100)

S.P = Rs.(x+(9x100)) = Rs. (109x100)

It is given that the selling price should be Rs. 981.

Therefore, (109x100) = 981

x = 900

Thus, reduced price of the box after discount = Rs. 900

Hence, reduction needed in the price of the box = (Rs. 981 - 900) = Rs. 81.
